the time. he brings it up all the time. it is his republican opponent, mr. romney, who has generally done his best to avoid the subject altogether. i have to say, credit where credit's due. today while he still did not go there directly, at least, at last, finally, today mitt romney got close to the subject. >> we have huge numbers of our men and women that are returning from conflict that are seeking counseling, psychological counseling, and can't find that counseling within our system. and, of course, record numbers of suicides. this is a crisis. >> that was mitt romney speaking today in springfield, virginia, to the american legion. and, no, he is still not apparently able to say anything about the war directly, but at least today where you saw him there, he did mention that this war has produced an outcome of war. which is american war veterans. neither the war nor its veterans were mentioned, of course, in mr. romney's speech to the nation upon becoming his party's nominee for president. he's trying to fix the veterans part of that oversight. he really as a candidate still seems inca
the needs and problems of people like them. some of mr. romney's numbers are just shockingly bad. i mean double check. shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swing state voters who say mitt romney's policies will favor the middle class. in florida it's 8%. in ohio it's 9%. in pennsylvania it's 9%. whatever the romney campaign has done to get themselves to this point, whether it's mr. romney's tax returns, or the lack thereof, or getting rich by laying off factory workers or the tape where he says half the country is a bunch of lazy bums and victims who depend on the government and he doesn't care about them. whatever it is that turned their candidate into the 2012 reincarnation of thurston howell except in this reincarnation thurston is mean, whatever it is that has done that it's just killing him in the polls in every state. if the romney campaign does nothing else they must, must, must make sure that nobody anywhere near mitt romney does that rich guy can't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both mitt and i have summer places up in new ha
from the way mr. romney was beaten in 2008. it may have left his campaign determined that he not get stuck with the flip flopper label again. even though they leave the ads with the lies in them up and sometimes mr. romney goes on tv invents a brand new policy position he's never had before. after he does that, his staff follows behind him and quietly releasing statements faeg back his quotes. when mr. romney was asked in an interview last week about one of his immigration advisers. he said he could not confirm whether kris kobch was part of his team. and they yes, he's a romney campaign adviser. so he tells an interview he's never met with him but his campaign says what he said was not true. same thing happened last month when mr. romney came out with a whole new policy position on abortion rights. >> i'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest in the health of the life of the mother. >> he says he believes abortion should be allowed to protect a woman's health. afterwards the campaign said that's not what he believes. he doesn't actually support the legal ri
beach. and he went right at mr. romney on foreign policy and the wars. and he is -- he's right there when he says that we don't know what mr. romney would do if he . ey srely and. vaguely that he supports what president obama is doing in afghanistan in terms of there being a timeline for leaving but he has also said he was against a timeline for leaving in the past. so really who knows? he's not even trying. the closest we've gotten to any competing cont republican tin wa pbl wt sator john mccain at the republican convention when he said that the afghanistan war just shouldn't end. he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm noture that it's a politicallviable position. even if it is an internally cogent one from the senar. fois yr'mi i apparently just not going to happen. not unless he starts it now. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets to talking about the issue today. in that he spoke before a group of veterans and talked about a concern about veterans. even if he didn't say what he wa to do about tt con. mr. romney, in fact, implied that t
he ought to do it. he says, mr. romney can't call mr. obama a liar. that's too harsh a word that might backfire, that would backfire. mr. romney must instead set the record straight in a presidential tone, firm, respectful, but not differential. and a dash of humor is worth its weight in gold. >> yeah, what they are going to go for is the old reagan thing, show me -- you know, what was it, there you go again. and that's what they are going to go for except if i were president obama, i would come back and say, excuse me, you're not ronald reagan and i knew ronald reagan. i mean, you know, it's absolutely crazy. today we're going to have an nfl football game. can you imagine the opposing team giving the other team the playbook? i mean, he doesn't have that many plays in the book to begin with and now here your advisers are, in essence, giving the obama administration -- giving the obama debate team the play that they are going to run as if this president isn't going to be prepared to counter anything. i don't know what kind of campaign they are running and the last thing i wou

former new mexico governor gary johnson flanking the president and mr. romney despite the best efforts of his attorneys. the libertarian candidate is that third man. he has now filed an anti-trust lawsuit saying it's a conspiracy he's not invited to the debates. gary johnson joins me now. good day to you, governor. nice to see you again. >> hey. thank you for having me on, alex. >> well, before we talk about this lawsuit i want to put out the numbers here. among likely voters nationally speaking when you're the mix with president obama and mitt romney you get 6% of the vote. that is the best you have polled nationally. but the bar is set by the presidential election commission. it stands at 15%. so do you expect to get there at any point? >> well, let me state the obvious here, alex. do you hear my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? >> no. >> you hear my name one time for every 5,000 times you hear these guys. if i were just being given that six-time mention for every 100 times these guys were mentioned, you know what? i wouldn't be at 6, i'd be at
in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the cotiasnt t romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. askehow he intended to turn his campaign ound, mr. romney esneturnaround.s," ,t and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not onlyo win the presencyutge re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforcedrrors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. ifhining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newtingrich wou be t mi" well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, becausof his party -- at distraction.. >> it is. >> i'm talking about the p
romney has on his hands. in an op-ed, rove says, quote, mr. romney must call out the president. that is not so easy. mr. romney can't call mr. obama a liar. that's too harsh a word that would backfire. mr. romney must instead set the record straight in a presidential tone firm, respectful, but not deferential. joining me to talk about it from washington, richard goodstein, a democratic strategist who helped get al gore ready for the debates in 2000. on the phone from nebraska, brett o'donnell who is debate coach for mitt romney for part of the republican primary season. good afternoon to both of you gentlemen. >> good to be with you. >> let me start with you. tell me about the balance that romney has to strike, calling out, calling out president obama without appearing to be unfair or perhaps even nasty. >> well, i think it's all a matter of tone and language. and for governor romney, i would describe it as being respectfully but passionately aggressive. so in the way he refers to the president, referring to him as mr. president, with all due respect, but he also can't let that
has done to gem themselves to this point, whether it's mr. romney's tax returns or lack there of or getting rich by laying off fact workers or that videotape that said half the country is lady bums and he doesn't care about them? in this reincarnation, thurston is mean. whaef it is that has done that is just killing him in the polls,every state. if the romney campaign does nothing else, they must, must, must make sure that nobody anywhere near mitt romney does that rich guy can't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both mitt and i have summer places up in new hampshire on lake winnipesaukee. a few summers ago was taking my chin and grandchildren to the town in the boat for ice cream. i got to the doing, looked around, there was no place to dock, we pulled over and all jumped out and ran up the dock and i realized there was nobody left in the boat to help me tie up or anything, they left me at to sea. i pulled up and i said who is going to tie up the boat? i looked up and there is mitt romney. he tied up the boat and rescued me.
obama, mr. romney should "not be hostile but be assertive, clear, a dirt and not back off." >>> cpaigngith mro in ohio yesterday was mike row, the host of "dirty jobs." the two agreed that creating jobs is the most important thing that america needs. >>> the "orlando sentinel" reports at jimmy buffet, the mayor of margaritaville, will be doina prmex m to help president obama. tickets for the private invitation only fund-raiser cost between $500 and $5,000. >>> steve harvey will tapen episode today at nbc in chicago with first lady michelle obama r hew t tal show. he says he is honored. the interview will air next wednesday. >>> and bill clinton told cnn he can't be president in the u.s. again but he does have other options. clinton says because of his irish heritage, he would be elle runorsint in ireland. since his home state of arkansas was part of the french empire before the louisiana purchase, he could run for president of france. but his french is so bad that he asys "within a week i'd be anhar morning dish of "scrambled politics." >>> and now here's your "first look"
. in that ad we just saw, you heard mr. romney say that president obama cares for the middle class and poor people as i do. of course he does. and of course mitt romney does. anyone that thinks otherwise would be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that, these outside groups tending hundreds of millions of dollars on television ads, let them be the ones who go out and attack barack obama, not mitt romney. so in many ways i think there's a level of frustration with the romney campaign from conservatives that
doesn't have a plan and now it is the time to explain it. mr. romney, you have an hour and a half to explain it. >> jennifer: that's what the president says. we have time explain it. oh, that would be so perfect. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: so mitt romney is claiming out of his mouth that he is going to -- he -- i think he said -- was going to be fact checking the president during the debates, real time? >> maybe he has a little something in his ear -- >> that didn't work very well it didn't. >> jennifer: describe the fact-checking experience in a presidential campaign during the debate. >> i think -- look what you have got of course out there is a lot of people tweeting and folks commenting and all of that going on outside. but he is not going to have a lot of notes and stuff with facts on them, i don't think. plus this president -- if he is not anything, he is careful. you are not going to see coming from barack obama a lot of crazy numbers and wild -- wild claims. that is not going to happen. >> jennifer: you know what is interesting -- i imagine, peter -- i'm

that in the polls. this shows that mr. romney and bain, it wasn't about job creation. it was about putting profits before people! it was about gutting companies in order to make the best return for investors. so when mitt romney says i want to be ceo of america does that mean he's going to harvest america? not something i think millions of americans want to see happen to a country which needs investment not looting. >> jennifer: exactly right. well, i promised our viewers that i would bring you on so we could talk about some stuff on the campaign trail. i want to switch gears for a second and talk about some of the senate races. one in particular because it is bubbling up today which is this. the todd akin, of course rubbing for senate in missouri said that senator claire mccaskill was aggressive and less lady-like in their debate than during the 2006 debates. i'm just -- when i heard that -- may hair stood on end. >> this guy of serial corruptions and you know, put his foot in his mouth with legitimate rape has the temerity t

outrage" now available in paperback. mr. reich, good to have you back with us tonight. i want to play another piece from the same 1985 video where mitt romney offers three reasons bain and company decided to create bain capital. here it is. >> three reasons. we recognize that we have the potential to develop a significant and proprietary flow of business opportunities. secondly, we had concepts and experience which would allow us to identify potential value and hidden value in a particular investment candidate, and third, we had the consulting resources and management skills and management resources to become actively involved in the companies we invested in to help them realize their potential value. >> i tell you what, he has the corporate lingo down. we didn't hear one word about creating jobs and we never would under this economic model. do you believe we would? >> no, ed, in fact, creating jobs, ed, at best is a particular product maybe of a long-term strategy to build new products and also build new markets and keep americans employed. but that is not the centerpiece of private
on the two campaigns' ongoing debate preps. here is what they they said about romney's prep. quote, mr. romney's team has clon included that the debates are about creating moments and has eye quipped had i am with a series of zingers he's memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. bob shrum, you have been on that particular role, preparing candidates for debate. what do you make of romney, a rather stiff customer to begin with, coming off as sort of a henne youngman or whatever, some sort of a don rickels with some zingers. i don't think of him as a zinger kind of guy which obama is expected to be left helpless. what do you make of that strategy? >> first of all, if you had it, you wouldn't announce it. it's kind of stupid. >> why are they leaking it? >> i don't know. because they're trying to hold onto their people, they're undisciplined, i have no idea. number two, zingers don't exist in a vacuum. it's not just coming up with some funny lines. they have to be part of the fabric of the argument and part of the fabric of who the person is. when ronald reagan said there yo
on the spot. when you hear a lie, it shouldn't be, hmm. it should be i'm sorry, mr. romney or president obama, that's not true because with so many people watching, people want to know i'm hearing the truth. it shouldn't be let me wait two hours later to get the truth. call them out on the lies whoever says it, on the spot. >> sometimes, that takes a tough level of preparation. although you should be able to -- >> that's why you have a team to decide and that's their job. >> we live in a world -- >> it's not just about preparation. >> lies are subjective. i can't believe i'm saying that -- >> president obama -- promised he would not raise middle class taxes. in his affordable care act, there are a number of tax increases that will impact households making less than $250,000 per year. you can parse that and say, it's note a tax increase the way i talked, that's something else. the thing is, one thing or another, is it a tax increase or not? it certainly is through the tax system. it is impacting some middle class households. did you lie? he's going to say, no, i did not lie. >> and that's fine
